Burgundy Bourgogne’s heirloom history springs from the 17th century when a group of Huguenots under Simon van der Stel travelled from Stellenbosch and into the Valley of Franschoek where they established 23 farms on what has now become world-famous terrain.
The original H-shaped manor house, the piece de resistance, is a national monument with its unique gable and has kept its heirloom atmosphere while maintaining its four-star comfort. The manager’s house is also a national monument dating back to 1791. The farm was granted to Pierre de Villiers, Huguenot, from La Rochelle in France, by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the Cape Colony, in 1694.
This eye bogglingly beautiful wine estate was restored in 2001 by the Kirsten family and the original Title Deed granted by Simon van der Stel hangs in the Manor, a reminder of its historical status.
